We're witnessing exciting progress as new and improved infrastructure takes shape.

Walls with stronger and safer integrity than previous structures are currently being installed on the east half of the project, while utility relocation progresses on the west half. Additionally, contractors are completing grading for the roadway leading up to the bridge, enhancing drainage for a smoother, safer ride in the future!

At Tuesday’s (8/16/2022) City Council meeting, Council approved an ordinance that reduces the speed limit on North White Chapel Boulevard from 40 mph to 35 mph.

This change will take place at the south portion of North White Chapel Boulevard between Southlake Boulevard and SH 114.

“Reducing the speed limit was in line with the design of the four-lane divided highway that was mentioned in the Master Mobility Plan,” Director of Public Works Rob Cohen said, “The reduced speed combined with minor signing and striping modifications would also alleviate any sight visibility concerns.”

Message boards are on North White Chapel to let drivers know about the change. After a grace period, Southlake Police will begin enforcing the new speed limit August 24, 2022.

Due to a shortage of one of the main ingredients in concrete in the D/FW metroplex, the Southlake Public Works Department made the decision to create a temporary batch plant to complete the N. White Chapel Project on schedule.

A temporary batch plant, or concrete mixing plant, will be brought on the east side of N. White Chapel Boulevard between E. Highland Street and Ascot Drive so that necessary materials are available to complete the project in a timely manner. Without the temporary batch plant, the project will be delayed, possibly as long as six months.

The location was chosen because it met Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements and was near the construction site. Other reviewed sites could have taken 4-6 months to be approved.

The temporary batch plant will operate in two phases. The first phase will require the plant to be open for four weeks. Approximately 6-8 weeks later, the plant will operate for another four weeks. The plant will then be removed.

The plant will operate during normal project work hours, from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday – Friday. On occasion, the plant may be open on Saturday. Deliveries to the plant will be made outside of traffic rush hours.

Residents can expect muffled generator or vehicle noises. A water truck and sweeper will be onsite to minimize windblown dust and keep the area clear of material.
